Hey all i have a quick question. I just got done smoking my first pastrami, foiled at 165 and pulled it from smoker at 185 and placed it in the fridge for a few hours as getting ready for church. The question is when i get home and go to steam it should i slice it then steam or steam then slice? Making grilled pastrami and sautaed onion with swiss sandwiches.

Now I steam then slice then slice myself but that's me. I have heard of many here that say the opposite and for them that's the right way. I guess what I'm saying is try it whole then after that and believe me you'll do another one try it the other way and see which one you prefer
